During Thursday’s (Dec. 22) “X Factor” finale Weight Watchers will debut its latest ad starring spokesperson Jennifer Hudson. And in the great tradition of digitally-manipulated duets, J.Hud pairs up with… herself! to sing her 2004 “American Idol” audition song, “I Believe in You and Me.”

You might remember that performance as the one Simon Cowell chose to completely shred Hudson for her ensemble (to be fair, Randy Jackson took a shot at her outfit, too, and neither made a reference to her stature).

We also liked her retort when they blasted her: “I’m just free and I have to dress how I feel.”

Right on. We’re all psyched about your weight loss, Jennifer, but know that you were beautiful to begin with.
